Bringing Balance to the Force

Madewell crop sweater and Star Wars bed sheet skirt

I’m on a roll with fun skirts and it’s been much too long since I’ve worn this Star Wars skirt, made out of the original vintage bed sheets! I made this skirt a few years back and it’s been gathering way too much dust! Although there are quite a few licensed Star Wars fabrics, this is still by far my favorite one since it looks more like a painting and a little less “cartoony”. However, being a very eye-catching print, I still wanted to keep this outfit balanced and not wear anything too busy on top. Paired with a cute crop sweater or even a basic white tee, it’s all about bringing balance to the force. :D

Roses are Red

Star Wars Crop top with Gap Floral Skrit

Valentine’s Day may have just passed, but I sense with all the extra Valentine’s candy that’s been showing up at work, love might still be in the air? Even though I purchased this skirt back in December, it was practically screaming to be worn around Valentine’s Day with all the red and pink floral. Paired with another “love” of mine, it’s the perfect romance of Star Wars and fashion!

The Skirt is Greener…

Green Midi Skirt and polka dot topIt’s easy to get caught up in comparing yourself to others and that’s definitely one thing I’ve always struggled with. Sometimes doing so is motivating, but at the same time, it can also be discouraging as it might just end up making you feel like you will never be as successful/rich/pretty/etc. as others. Because of this realization, I’m constantly trying to make sure I focus on doing what I like and what I’m passionate about, rather than doing things only because other people expect you to or because you think, “Maybe if I do this, I will be more popular!”. One thing I’ve tried to focus on this week is  Continue reading

Cameo Appearance

Peter Pan Dress and Leia Necklace

Usually when I put together an outfit, jewelry is the thing I put on once I figure out what I’m wearing. But today, it was the complete opposite as I searched for something to wear with this amazing Princess Leia necklace. As I tried to look for something a little more “proper”, I ended up going with this peter pan collared dress to complete the look. I’m definitely a big fan of peter pan collars – and mixed with some vintage inspired jewelry, it’s a nice balance between a little Wednesday Addams youthfulness and old-era fashion.

Star Wars Christmas

DIY Stormtrooper Christmas SweaterI don’t know what it is about the holidays, but I’m always in the mood to make things during this time. Sure, I work on cosplay throughout a lot of the year, but once Halloween is over, I tend to take a long break from costume making and focus on other crafts, whether they are Haunted Mansion inspired wreaths or Gingerbread AT-ATs. Today’s project came about after realizing I had too many clothes and too many black pullovers. I suddenly had the idea to turn my plain black sweatshirt into something more geeky and festive for the holidays and thus the Stormtrooper Christmas sweater was born!

Hoth Sweet Hoth

Star Wars Hoth Ugly Christmas SweaterEver since I found this Hoth inspired “ugly Christmas sweater”, I haven’t been able to stop wearing it. My favorite Star Wars vehicle just happens to be an AT-AT and after some confusion as to why there was an AT-ST on the sweater, I later found out that they do in fact make a brief appearance in The Empire Strikes Back. So in the end, all was right in the Star Wars world and I was once again content with my new Christmas sweater. I am finding as many excuses as I can to wear this as much as possible this season, which includes at least one holiday party where I’ll be wearing this outfit. There may be a lot going on from top to bottom, but I figure with the holidays, people will understand. :)
